CLEARANCE DIVING, THE LINDT CAFE SEIGE & TURNING BACK ASYLUM SEEKERS...
THE ROVING MIC BY HAYDEN QUINN
The Roving Mic loves the Gold Coast, and so does our next guest, Sam Peters. After growing up on the Northern Beaches and playing professional rugby league, Sam wanted another challenge. This is what lead him to the Australian Navy and the specialist unit of Navy Clearance Divers, from here Sam dove to the deepest depths, joined Australia's counter terrorism unit TAG(E) and now patrols the northern boarders of Australia as a Maritime Tactical Officer with the Australian Border Force.
This is one of our longer chats on The Roving Mic, but definitely worth it!
